Schnitzer West puts Denny Triangle buildings up for sale Project of the Month: Melrose Market — old buildings, new economy
Stocks mixed after 3 days of losses

The stretch of Melrose between Pike and Pine is a neighborhood hub.

Melrose Avenue between Pike and Pine streets in Seattle is one of those short stretches that promises to lend distinction to any address along it. They just don’t make places like this anymore.

But until recently, it wasn’t a place that attracted many people.

That’s changing. At Melrose Market, shoppers pass in and out of restored storefronts, and lunchtime crowds fill tables lined up outside. This long triangle of one- and two-story structures was ready for a new life.

The market anchors it all. Spanning the middle of the block at 1531 Melrose Ave., the market is a version of the classic arcade or bazaar — a street-like, sheltered environment lined with vendors mostly unenclosed by walls.
